Vampire Kisses Vampire Kisses Blood Relatives 3 dAs a Yankee Her hatred of Yankees raneep with no clear explanation as to why she hated them so much The only being that they invaded her land took over her house and killed her husband but this was after the war started and her hatred began before these events occurred I suppose it was implied she hated Yankees for taking away the Southern Plantation life she was used to by the North s wish to end slavery But then later on she comes to realize that Blue or Gray a man was still a man underneath It should ve been with that realization that she knew she could marry Jesse the man beneath the blue union But she still refuses to marry him because he s a Yankee She got frustrating and I totally sympathized with the hero s frustration I loved the scene when he finally got Kiernan to confess that she loves him He been shot and fell to the ground She believed him ying and then finally admitted that she loved him and always had always will He teases her and then she notices that he s not mortally wounded and ying but that the bullet had only grazed his arm Definitely recommend if you re into Civil War romances 35 starsBeing ten years younger then Jesse Cameron Kiernan had to wait to grow up until she caught his eye but watch out when he returns wait to grow up until she caught his eye but watch out when he returns leave and gets one look at her she is the woman for him for life That said things are heating up between the North and the South and Keirnan s southern sympathies are no big secret and she s none too happy when Jesse stays with the Union Army She marries on the rebound is promptly widowed this is revealed in the first few pages and vows to hate Jesse forever but will that ole treacherous body betray her when the Union soldiers including Jessecome marching up to her oorstepThis is a uick easy read and perfect for a rainy Sunday afternoon when you re in the mood for something lighter While Jesse and Kiernan have plenty of ups and owns in their relationships and plenty of making up I wouldn t classify it as a Big Misunderstanding There is a fair amount of sex in the book occasionally on the cheesy side so efinitely not recommended for the younger readers and I Forsaken Otherworld Stories 13 5 d also caution potential readers that while this is a romance the authoroes include a lot of history in this with some etails of politics and iscussion of major battles I m a history geek and love #that stuff but from reading some of the other reviews there are those who on t care for that and if #stuff but from reading some of the other reviews there are those who on t care for that and if perhaps this book might

HER REBEL SPIRIT DEFIED HIS YANKEE SOULShe was velvet and silk emerald eyes and sunstruck hair Kiernan Miller had married one man to protect her from another She hated Jesse Cameron with a fierce passion As a Power In No Other Name doctoruring the civil war one that gave lots etails on the subjectI feel like I m being a bit harsh since I id enjoy reading it and I actually want to read the other two in the seriesA bit of a warning though for those NOT interested in the history there is lots of it This review is for a Free copy courtesy of Random House via NetGalley PERFECTIONI might be a bit biased since I feel an odd connection to the civil war and the time #Period But I Found #but I found book to be perfection I know there isn t any comparisons to GWTW and that novel is entirely in its own ballpark but I somehow enjoyed and got invested into this Why Crazy Then perhaps I shall blame that on the amazing characters Kieran and Jesse They were perfect for each other and knew one another so well Both knew exactly what to say or Mihael do to get under each other s skin Kieran would push Jesse and he always pushed back both giving as good as they received Even when Kieran was infuriated and told him she hated him she still loved him I liked how she was his neighbor he was 10 years her senior and he got to watch her grow and mature into a fine southern belle I loved how he would tease her and when she became of age he threw in the towel and said oh hell and finally kissed her Then we have Anthony another young man who is pining after Kieran s heart He was a perfect gentleman a far cry from Jesse who was rough around the edges Even though I was team Jesse my heart Germany Will Try It Again did have a fondness for Anthony how he rode out of his way to get Kieran to marry him a bit sad as how things ended up for him though And finally Jesse got what he wanted Kieran as his wife even if heid have to cohorts her into it Daniel was also a great character too an I can t wait to read his and their sisters story Rating 25 out of 5One Wore BlueI finally got around to reading Kiernan and Jesse s story Kiernan isappointed me so very much in this book She is anti slavery but still eathly loyal to the Confederates Her reasoning what I gathered was that Yankees have no right to take away their choice Which sounds reasonable except when the choice in uestion involves taking another person s choice away What I mean to say is that she thinks the Southern states should be given a choice to stop slavery But what about the rights of people who are enslaved Where is their choice She also argues that they will eventually stop it Well eventually isn t good enough Injustice was happening then and there it shouldn t have been happening anyway It should have been stopped the ay it began I really I #Really Enjoyed This One It #enjoyed this one it
